The Denver Nuggets were celebrating their home opener on Friday night against the Portland Trail Blazers when the team’s mascot, Rocky, made his grand entrance from the arena’s rafters. Something wasn’t exactly right with Rocky though. As he made his descent to the floor (tethered to a rope of course) it appeared that the mascot was completely lifeless. That assumption really hit home the moment that Rocky fell to ground when his feet touched the floor. The entire crowd watched in horror as the motionless mascot was checked by medical personnel before leaving the court under his own power.
According to reports, at some point during Rocky’s lowering the mascot lost consciousness after having the wind knocked out of him. Shortly after the traumatizing event Rocky took to Twitter to prove that he was alright.
Feeling much better, #NuggetsNation! Thanks for your support. I hope to be back in action for 11/5 vs the @Spurs. Go @DenverNuggets!

There is even a little footage of the traumatizing event up on youtube.

After two games and seemingly a million lineups, player combinations and headaches that have accompanied it all, Nuggets coach Brian Shaw is considering, well, another lineup change.
This one deals with the starters, and mostly boils down to the power forward spot, where he's pondering whether it's time to get Kenneth Faried back among the opening five.
The major story of the day in the United States is regarding a shooting at the Los Angeles International airport and thankfully for Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee, his mother and cousins are okay.
